We’re losing the control and identity of our UK armed forces to the European Defence Forces and the ‘global’ agenda … and no one knows or cares!

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and David

C – Hello Dave, and what have you got for me this week and is the face of the Royal Marines changing for the better or worse?

D – Very good morning Chris and a big shout out to all the fellow bootnecks and frontline units there. Well we’ve sort of rounded the revelations made yesterday at the defence committee, and we’ve had this integrated review finally being released and it’s full but of course what they’ve done over the previous months is this stuff keeps being drifted out in little snippets. Just as if it’s like a softening up exercise. So there’s several things happening in the same time frame. So let’s go with the Royal Marines and Stonehouse. We’ve got the same M.O. as drifting this stuff out in the press, so they want to shut Stonehouse, that’s the cultural centre of the Royal Marines, and we’re seeing this gambit of a Rangers force coming in but what that really actually what that is and this is where I need everybody to pay attention. The concept of this unification of our military was articulated by our permanent secretary back in 2015…

#153 UK To Lose Autonomy Of Military & Defence Industry | David Ellis | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

David Ellis and I discuss the extreme likelihood that the UK military will become a part of the EU Defence Force despite Brexit.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and David

C – David how are you Sir?

D – Good morning Chris, how are you?

C – Yes mate good. So I had an email recently from a former special forces veteran, that said I need to speak to you, and I’m aware of your work because I think just being in this field you get to know what certain people are doing, especially the movers and shakers. Hence we’re having this chat. I think we share not just joint concerns about let’s call it the appropriation of our very loyal military, but I know you and I see at at a structural level which I why I welcome you onto the podcast. It’s quite difficult for me because I don’t like to talk about the good guys and bad guys, it’s just not that helpful. That’s like old school thinking from before the first and second world wars. What I like to do is look at what’s happening in the world today, why is it like this? Who is controlling it, who makes the money from it and of course who gets the power and I know we think along the same lines…

Prev 1 of 1 Next

Bernie was born in South London and joined the Royal Marines in 1973. During his twenty-four year military career, he served with 45, 40 and 41 Royal Marine Commandos, was attached to the Special Boat Service and also engaged in special duties in Northern Ireland. After his retirement from the Corps, Bernie joined the London Security ‘Circuit’ as a contractor and covered a variety of roles over a twenty year period, ranging from body-guarding an Arab Royal family to providing media security protection to news teams in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He has recently retired from working as a US DOD contractor teaching intelligence methods to the Iraqi and Afghan Army. He has started to write and uses this experience to enhance the realism of his books/scripts, penned under the name W.T.Delaney.

Chris and Bernie

C – Bernie, how are you mate?

B – I’m fine Chris, fine.

C – Are we allowed to say were in the world you are, it’s not going to get you a target on you.

B – No it’s fine, I’m in Spain, in the lockdown of all lockdowns. It’s like being under the Stasi over here mate.

C – Bernie, I’m just going to say a few key words here which apparently work well for promoting our video when it goes on YouTube, that’s not actually the reason I do it but it helps the people at home to know what sort of thing we’re going to be talking about. So we’re going to be talking about the royal marines, unarmed combat, MI5, the intelligence services, the middle east and body guarding…

Dean joined the Britain’s elite Special Boat Service (SBS) and took part of some of the most daring and dangerous operations in recent times. But then, following a horrific parachuting accident, Dean’s dream career was cut short, and he was put to its toughest test.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Dean

C – Dean how are you brother?

D – I’m alright yourself?

C – Yes, I can’t complain. I’ve been in the garden for the last half hour, and my God I’m not one of these people who says that it’s too hot because it can never be too hot. Bloody hell it’s hot.

D – I’m in Aberdeen and it’s over twenty five degrees here, people are spontaneously combusting in Scotland.

C – Are they still blue?

D – Yeah, but they’ve gone a little bit white now.

C – Massive thanks for joining us mate, especially at such short notice. It’s all kicking off for you now then with your book released.

D – Yeah they hardback was released in October, and yesterday the paperback was released and we’re supposed to be out and about promoting it, but because of the current situation, I haven’t been able to do that and attend literacy festivals and other events that we had scheduled. So it’s all had to be via social media.

C – Well I don’t think that’s a bad thing to be honest.

D – Right, I think there’s been a lot of positives on this period. I don’t believe in the phrase we’re all in the same boat, because we’ve all got different boats and people in all sorts of different situations…

Steve Mathews fought with 1 Para in Iraq and went onto serve with the Special Forces Support Group. Steve explains all about the airborne brigade, the death of the military policeman at at Majar al-Kabir, how 1 Para almost jumped into battle, how the parachute course is run and his current work as a civilian security contractor in Iraq. We discuss the parachute course at Brize Norton including the skyvan and the old balloon jump, and what it like to work alongside the Special Air Force (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS) and training, tactics and weapons.

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Steve

C – Steve how are you brother?

S – I’m good thank you how are you?

C – I’m very well mate, thank you for asking. You’re in Iraq as we speak?

S – Yeah, currently on lockdown in Baghdad, Iraq yeah.

C – What position are you holding in there?

S – I’m basically working for a private security company. Part of the regional management team. So we basically oversee all the projects in our region and provide support for those projects.

C – If we go back to the beginning, it was 1 Para you were in?

S – Yeah, so I left school in the year 2000, always wanted to join the military, I had three other family members in the parachute regiment at the time, so my allegiance was to the parachute regiment. I was too young to join as an adult entry, so my only option was to go to the army foundation college in Harrogate…

#70 Stolen ‘Valor’ Exposed | Ben’s Story | The Truth Behind Walter Mitty

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

My most heroic guest to date helps me explore the truth behind veteran impersonation aka Water Mitty or Stolen Valor (valour – UK spelling)

Transcript snippet from podcast

Chris and Ben

C – Ben, how are you brother?

B – I’m doing good how are you?

C – Running out of clever replies, that probably aren’t really that clever.

B – When someone asks me this at work or whatever my usual reply when someone asks me how are you? I answer loving life. No matter what type of day it is, it’s positive affirmation. Sometimes good is just as sufficient, but I think if you say that enough times it gets contagious and other people start to say it whether they mean it or not.

C – I don’t mean to be rude to my guests but they’ve got to sort out the way they fricking speak man. All this “I’m good”. This is England, we’re British and we’re very proud about that. We’re not nationalistic but we’re proud not to have to copy other countries. People can speak how they want, of course they can but I do think though. I think people who are easily swayed with their language just start saying what other people say. You know like this ‘passed’ thing instead of died. They use ‘passed’. I personally think there’s a lot to dissect there…

Transcript snippet from podcast

C – James, how are you Sir?

J – Good thanks Sir, always good to speak to a fellow bootneck, and finding out another one of us has made it onto the online and media industry.

C – A meagre foray I think you could say but it’s all exciting stuff. I have to say I’m really honoured James, I really am, for so many reasons, least of which is the work you’re doing to protect wildlife. I was just watching one of your videos there with the lions. I’ve lived in China and the odds are stacked against these beautiful creatures…

#127 SAS Captain | Mercenary | Political Prisoner | Simon Mann | Bought The T-Shirt Podcast

Prev 1 of 1 Next
Prev 1 of 1 Next

Simon Mann is a British former Special Air Service (SAS) army officer and legendary condottiere (not mercenary as often wrongly labelled). Simon trained at Sandhurst and was commissioned into the Scots Guards. On leaving the military, he co-founded the private military company, Executive Outcomes and co-founded Sandline International with fellow ex-Scots Guards Colonel Tim Spicer in 1996, operating mostly in Angola and Sierra Leone. On 7 March 2004, Mann is alleged to have led the 2004 Equatorial Guinea coup d’état attempt. He was arrested by Zimbabwean police in Harare airport, along with 64 other private contractors – branded as ‘mercenaries’. Simon served three years of a four-year prison sentence in Zimbabwe and less than two years of a 34 years and four months sentence in Equatorial Guinea. Simon is now a much-sought-after public speaker and consultant.

C – Simon how are you Sir?

S – I’m good thanks.

C -You’re in Johannesburg aren’t you?

S – Yep, it’s lovely, normal, no lockdown, it’s lovely.

C – Well let me just say, one night in Johannesburg is like one night in Bangkok, just with less girls!…

Chris and Richie

C – Richie how are you brother?

R – Yeah I’m good mate how are you, thanks for having me on.

C – It’s my pleasure mate, anything about Everest, I’m all ears and I’ve got big enough ears as it is. So when you sent your email to me, it’s fascinating stuff. You spent a lot of time in Thailand I believe?

R -Yeah I was living there, between work in the Middle East and holidaying in the Himalayas.

C – I loved every single minute of being in Thailand, even when I got my nose broken by a Thai doorman.

R – Happens a lot that sort of thing.

C – It was still a great night! Little tip for you there folks, if you ever get mugged in a Thai bar by the bar staff, which they used to do. I’m not sure what it’s like in the modern tourism world there. Rather than trying to fight the bouncer, just go and speak to the tourist police, and they’ll get your money back for you.

R – And you don’t fight one, you fight ten as well.

C – Yes! …

C – Well, I’m never going to complain anyway! You get one life, if you want to spend it depressed, I’ve done all that shit mate, and I’m not doing it again.

A – You’re right, you’ve got one life and you live it to the full mate, that’s what it’s about.

C – So, first question, is it true that the Royal Marines are better than the Paras?

A – What I’m going to say about that one is the new advertising poster ‘Ready for Anything’ is outstanding! At the end of the day, if you can’t have a bit of banter with fellow servicemen, then there’s something wrong. The Marines respect the Paras and the Paras respect the Marines. So at the end of the day we all get the job done.
